Great budget hotel for sightseeing

Simple but lovely small hotel right in the centre of Florence. Situated at a square, so no noisy traffic in front of the hotel. All the major attractions are within walking distance. Only 5 minutes walk from the train station, where you can also catch the bus to the airport. Friendly and helpfull staff. Rooms kept very clean. Only small downside to this hotel is that there is no closet in the room, so we practically had to live out of our luggage. Great value for money. Would happily stay here again.

Don't miss the Uffici, one of the greatest museums in the world! And don't forget to book your tickets in advance through their website... it will spare you hours of waiting in line!

Great value for money

Nice little hotel in central Florence, right next to the Santa Maria Novella church. 5 minutes walk from the train station, 10-15 minutes walk from the major attractions. Clean room, friendly and helpful staff. Only downside was that the room had no closet, so we had to live out of our luggage. Other than that, at this price we are more than happy to come back again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Mercato Centrale is a covered market where the locals go to get their groceries. Buy local fruit, hand made sausages, Tuscan wines or any other great souvenir. Or just feast your eyes.

Great location within walking

Great location within walking distance of the town centre. Plenty of restaurants to choose from within 10 mins walk. Lots of the best gelato in the piazza and good place to sit there and eat it.
